Knee Surgery/Pink Saturday

 Pink Saturday too.
Thank You everyone for your kind and caring thoughts.
Knee Surgery
I went in for what should have been an easy knee surgery scope for a tear in my cartilage. But between the anestisia, surgery, pain meds. and stress my heart rate went down into the 30's within 24 hours of the surgery while I was at the hotel recovering. My daughter was staying with me and I gave her a terrible fright. I stopped breathing and completely blacked out. She got me back and called 911. I stayed in the hospital for 2 more days and now I'm off to see speacilist about my heart. Went in for one thing came out with something completely different.

Now here is something strange I will share with you. Once I had blacked out, I did not hear anything. I did not hear them shouting at me to breath, sit up, respond in any way. I did not feel them pounding on me, slapping me, shaking me, nothing........What I remember is going to an orange and very warm peaceful place.....I tell you it is easy to die!!!!. I am not afraid of death anymore. However, I am soooooo happy to be alive and home again.

Thank You for your thoughts,

Best Wishes,

~Jean .


  1. Oh Jean!
    That is so scary. I am so glad your daughter was with you. I gather you had to go to another town for this. They should have kept you in the hosp. and not sent you to a hotel. That orange place is scarry too.
    Thank God you are Ok. I pray you get home soon and recover fast. yvonne

  2. Oh My Goodness Sweetie...
    I am so thrilled to see that you are back with us, and to hear that your knee surgery went okay. Praise God that your daughter was with you, she was meant to be there.

    Please keep us posted on the appointment with the heart dr. That is really scary. I will be keeping you in my prayers. I have heard from more than one that it is a warm place and not to be afraid. That it is not scary. Thank you for sharing.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  3. Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mother's Day, Jean.

  4. What an uplifting end to a scarry situation....Your daughter is such a blessing in all of this. Have a wonderful MOTHERS DAY.

  5. Your daughter was meant to be there to save your life. So happy that you are home and mending and will find out more about your heart issue. Such a scary experience for both you and your daughter. On a lighter note, like your header,yup the fish did come to eat! Without the mess of cleaning the tanks all the time. Happy Mother's Day!

  8. What a terrible ordeal you have had. So thankful you are doing better. I thought they checked your heart before any type surgery. You were lucky.

  9. Oh gosh I do hope you feel better soon! I am glad you're not afraid of death, but so glad you're here to post!

    Happy PS,

  10. Hi Jean Sweetie...
    I had to pop back over this evening and see if you have heard any more about your heart? Have you seen the specialist yet? I will continue to keep you in my prayers my sweet friend.

    Happy Mother's Day. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  11. You have a lot to be thankful for today. I'm glad to hear you are on the mend. Have a Happy Mother's Day!

  12. Oh Jean, I'm so happy to hear that you made it through the experience to tell about it! Life is definitely unpredictable, isn't it? I hope you are well on your way to recovery now. Have a wonderful and restful weekend and a blessed Mother's Day. You and your daughter will have something special to celebrate. Hugs, Terri

  13. Oh my goodness! Did you have a bad reaction to the medication? My Mother did that too and found out she couldn't take the meds. Praying for you and am thankful that you are alright.
    Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mother's day.
    Thank heavens your daughter was there for you.
